Can write code, as I have done for the past 15 years. In another 15 years, I should be writing excellent code.

comment History of “Asian American” / “African American” nomenclature
@Alain, this is probably a sensitive area, where words seem to have varying meaning in various countries. The term "coloured" is supposedly unacceptable in South Africa (Usage & Abusage - Eric Partridge)

@jgbelacqua, I understand. However, my knowledge is very limited, and I might hurt someone's feelings. I apologize if so. Would you be able to fix the question?

@jgbelacqua, one is accepted, another is uncommon; however, my question was only towards the history of the terms. I was sure there is some history behind this, which is an answer indicates.

@peter Tolkien seems to have used the word sorcerer But glad would he have been to know its fate who wrought it slowly long ago in the North-kingdom when the Dunedain were young, and chief among their foes was the dread realm of Angmar and its sorcerer king. No other blade, not though mightier hands had wielded it, would have dealt… LOTR, Book V, chapter 6, page 6. The usage usually seems to indicate dark magic.

@chaos Exactly! I was trying to go through Tolkein's works to see if he has used them interchangeably.

Why should it be RPG? I haven't played any RPGs with wizards or sorcerers, nor have I read Happy Potty, but still have come across these words great many times.
